could it be possible that time is not a reality but a human invention?

well, days still go by and we still age and die.

we do need to measure how long things go and the like, so that we can use our "time" wisely. So I wouldn't say it's foolish to believe that time exists and that we can easily measure it.

Next they'll say there's no such thing as years... that age is just all in our minds. That if we actually believed ourselves to be 20 years old forever, we would stay that way literally.
Hmm, would be nice, actually. :lol:
Yea,it's just an esoteric discussion. It exists on our bodies,it exists on the universe,we're all involved in entropy. Ending of it all is a certainty,just a "matter of time".

The eternal conitinuum.time as we understand it is gone.
I dunno... maybe I'll answer tomorrow.
Oh Lord!, I'm already late for my next appointment. Thanks for reminding me. Shock
I noticed that in the morning one minute lasts 30 seconds (instead of 60) and when I'm 5 minutes before leaving otherwise I'll be late, one minute lasts only 10 seconds.
I have to accelerate my movements to compensate for this time shrinking effect.
Quote:Therefore the best definition of time using its current understanding would be: “Time as a physical entity does not exist but we have utilized this concept to make relative comparisons of event durations to that of repetitive and reproducible naturally occurring cycles or subdivisions thereof.”

Why not "Time is the interval between two events?"
Quote:In summary, time as a physical entity does not exist, rather it is a means for comparing the duration of an event to the duration of another which is considered the reference standard.
True.
However it does exist as a non-physical entity. The reason why it is non-physical is it is the 4th dimension which we have no direct access to.
We can only access the three physical dimensions directly. It does not mean the fourth does not not exist.

There are (at least) four dimensions we can measure.
Length, width, height, and time. Those are not just physical measurements but also coordinates in a 4D space-time.
My coordinates on the surace of the Earth are-
27.96°N, 82.48°W, Elev. 23 ft, 10:40 PM EST.
Time exists and can be mesured.
Time also fluctuates with speed as Albert Einstein has demonstrated and later as astronauts verified.
Fred, yesterday we here, in the US, lost an hour, due to changing of Daylight Savings. Where did the hour go? Was there really time lost, or did that time really not exist in the first place?

Or was it just an adjustment for the changing of the Earth's tilt and the increase in daylight - therefore the hours change to match the daylight hours?

So we control time itself?
I think you folks are missing one of the implications of Q's assertion. It is: if time does not exist, then you cannot waste it. Wink1

Holly ***t! This is much more petaphysicaly complex than I thought! S2
One hour went somewhere and God knows where. Maybe in a parallel universe...? Shock
Fred, I agree. There is something strange going on here. Perhaps "Q" has the answer for all of us?
